It has been a long while since I've posted, and I wish I could tell you that it has been so long because of normal busy reasons. The past month and a half have been difficult because my beautiful daughter suffered from seizures terribly, and the day before Thanksgiving, Bronwyn passed away in the Pediatric ICU in Seattle after all attempts to gain control of her seizures failed.
I ache with missing her.
I know that grief is a process, and I'm only just beginning. But I re-read this post that I wrote late in October, and realize how much Bronwyn has taught me about living my life thoughtfully. Bronwyn has given me so much in her short life, and I realize that she continues to give even now after she's gone. I take comfort in the knowledge that her flame can burn brightly through my actions, and that her flame can be shared with others. That is so healing all by itself.
What Bronwyn Gave Me:
An understanding of selfless giving
The ability to listen
How to listen to my heart
The ability to be a strong advocate
The importance of receiving: this is something she's teaching me now.
Thank-You my sweet daughter. I love you forever; you are always with me.
